Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! I own 12 This shirt is the staple of my capsule wardrobe. I own one in every color (collected over the years) and 6 black ones. I pretty much only wear these shirts. They are flattering, water and stain resistant and indestructible. I traveled to NZ for 2 months on a work visa. I wore them in the office with the Columbia Anytime Outdoor Boot Cut Pants and I was always appropriately business casual. Then I would wear the same outfit with different shoes in the bush and tropics. I packed 4 of these shirts with 2 pair of pants and one shorts and wore them for two months. The only downside is that they get smelly. I'd layer a merino t shirt under and they'd last a few days. Washed in a sink, they'd dry over overnight. The Rollup sleeves make this a 4 season shirt (in the light colors). The zip pocket holds a phone and passport securely. I hope Columbia never stops making this shirt! It fits slightly small. I wear a 1X in Eileen Fisher and I bought 3X in this. It's roomy enough to layer that way. October 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Roomy I usually order a 2x in Columbia products. I can sometimes get away with a 1x for tops, but need a 2x for anything that covers my hips, so that's my default size. This shirt was definitely too big in a 2x. The haute pink is *very* pink, fair warning. This one went back, but I'll be keeping my eye open for great colours in a smaller size. October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great travel shirt I bought this shirt for a recent summer trip to England. It looked nice with the Anytime Boot Cut Pants and the Just Right Straight Leg Pant -- made me feel a little more put together than a t-shirt and jeans for city sightseeing. The quick dry was great -- sweat, rain, wash and wear. I could not have managed without it. I also love that it has some curve to it and isn't just straight up and down. It definitely runs small. I'm usually a 1X but needed the 2X to cover my bust and avoid gaping/pulling at the buttons. August 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable all purpose shirt I bought this top mainly for camping and paddling. I have fair skin so I want to make sure I have a lot of protection, especially when paddling in the full sun. This shirt is awesome. It's breathable, quick drying and the material is stretchy which makes is super comfortable. Thank you Columbia for carrying plus size clothing! June 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love those shirts Love those shirts, they. Fit perfectly for me and still have enough space in it. They are light and Let the air passing through in hot days. The only thing is when I found this product they were almost out of stock. Bravo to Culombia to think about the larger people like me that like to ware sporty cloding to work. Now you have to think about pants that would fit. Again I recommetd this product. June 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by this shirt is awesome! Love this shirt! Everything I wanted and more! Just wish it came in more colors! June 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I wanted Just what I wanted!!! Buy more June 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by love this shirt The material is great, fits great and very comfortable. I normally wear xl or xxl depending on the cut..2xl fits perfectly not baggy not tight...just right. May 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit and Style Took a risk and ordered a white one for summer hikes and camping. Loved the look, I am not small and definitely have curves and always have to purchase 1 size up (3X) to fit on top but you typically end up looking boxy or tent-like. The cut on this shirt flatters a womens curves so I purchased a second one immediately. Wear a matching tank under and you are ready to go. Love. Highly recommend. I only wear Columbia now camping and hiking and am so much more comfortable. Not everyone who is active and loves spending time outdoors is stick thin...Thanks Columbia for making stylish active wear for Plus sized people. April 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My go to shirt I already had 2 of these shirts in lovely bright colors, but needed a neutral to go on safari. So happy to find the fossil color. I live in these shirts - over tanks or tees, all by themselves, great sun protection, lightweight and easy to layer. they go on hikes, gardening, fishing, days at the ball field, and wash beautifully. venting is great for warm days. I am 5'8 and 200 lbs - with broad shoulders. The 1X is perfect for me. I can do XL in some shirts, but this one is great as 1X. Thank you for a wonderful design! March 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for travel and everything else This is my third Silver Ridge shirt. I also own 1 Bahama shirt and 6 Tamiami LS shirts. The Silver Ridge is by far my favorite style and fabric because it is a bit more stylish than the Tamiami shirts with its rounded bottom hem. The fabric is more substantial and doesn't snag as they tend to do. (Don't put them into the wash with anything Velcro, or wear them near blackberries). For me, the Bahama shirt wrinkles quite a bit and doesn't travel as well as the others. The Silver Ridge could be improved with more pockets and more colors. Perhaps a bright turquoise or true red. Columbia shirts go on lots of trails and travels with me for lightweight, sun protection and are easily layered over t's or under vests. They are a mainstay in my spring to fall wardrobe. Thanks, Columbia, for making great products in plus sizes. November 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt Great shirt for layering, not only does it block sun & wind, but does not trap in body moisture This will be a long time favorite November 1, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great but snug when rolled. These shirts are great! I wish they sold the short sleeve version all year round. Sometimes when I roll the sleeve, they almost squeeze at the elbow and are kind of constricting. I'm hoping this will relax with wear. October 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shirt love it, washed well and hangs nicely. October 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Shirt Love the shirt, wear it to dress up capris. Or throw on with shorts to block the sun. I hang to dry, it drys quickly. It is a part of my travel wardrobe. Two other friends own it and love it also August 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by If you are on the Petite end of Plus sizes Beautiful shirt. Arms and overall length of top ran short on me so I'm returning. Also, felt quite "hot" when I tried it on in my air conditioned house. Probably not a great pick for any situation you are trying to stay cool and covered. July 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this shirt I really love this shirt. I wish you had more colors in size 3x in both the long sleeve and short sleeve version. I have all the shirts that you have offered. They arrive quickly after being ordered. Did I say I love this shirt? It's good in all weather and always looks good on. July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flattering, feminine fit without sacrafice I love the tapered cut of this shirt and the slight stretch to the fabric. It offers the sun protection that I have to have with a little pizzazz. April 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great travel or weekend shirt I love this shirt! I can convert the sleeves to 3/4 if I want or keep it long. The lightweight fabric is perfect for the summer or layering as needed. March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shirt! This is just what I wanted for sun protection in warmer weather. Bought 2 to take on safari in Botswana. Love the zip pocket for those small odds and ends like lip balm, spare memory card, a couple of single packaged lens cleaners, etc. Thank you, Columbia, for providing a appropriate color for filming lions at close proximity with this shirt. Some of your other great products (like the Skiff) don't offer any muted colors for fishing and/or wildlife viewing!!!!!!!!! Hot pink or flame are not what you want when fishing or filming lions. You do have a muted blue, but according to research, blue attracts mosquitoes. Not good in Africa anytime or summertime in Montana!!! March 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shirt Great fit & drape. The buttons are placed well so that if I stretch, no one can see my bust. It's a little loose for me around the waist, but it's still fitted and flattering. With the sleeves rolled up, it's a little snug, but not restricting. Overall very happy with this shirt. July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent finishes This is a functional shirt that looks well tailored and classy. Yes, classy, as the hem is nicely finished with a slightly rounded hem that's finished nicely to look great as an over shirt to a tank. It does run slightly small, so order up a size. While the sleeves do roll up, it is a tight fit with the plus size, so be aware of this if you are going plan to wear it rolled up alot. I need the sun protection, and like that the sleeves are long enough to give that protection. I wear a normal 2X but wanted a loose fit because of an upcoming trip to a tropical destination. August 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome shirt I am not a big Columbia clothing fan, but this shirt is so great I now own 4, also so appreciate the shirt fits a fuller bust without looking like a I am wearing a tent. I also bought a size up so the shirt is not too tight. Also no Columbia logo on the front of the shirt, ordered the Tamiami by Columbia material was too clinging - logo on front . This shirt is easy to wash, looks good, and the material is so comfortable. Can go from outdoors to a casual dinner,. June 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by size it right! I bought this shirt in XL at first, and it fit like it was a size M. So then I bought a 2x, which seemed true to size and was huge on me! I give up. Please review your sizing. I really wanted this shirt for an active adventure during the summer! Remember- big women are active, too! May 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love, versatility, Function I have 4 of these shirt now, because I love them so much. I can put a tank top underneath and dress this shirt up or down. Go hiking or go to dinner. My absolute favorite travel shirt. April 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great shirt I have a short sleeved Silver Ridge shirt that I absolutely love so I ordered the long sleeve version. Nice selection of colors. I find the cut of this shirt very slimming although it does flare out some at the bottom. I find the sleeves in both versions a tiny bit tight in the upper arms but the fabric is stretchy enough that I only notice it when I first put it on. The shirt wicks well and performs really well in the heat. In cool weather, it tends to feel cool to me. It would probably be more comfortable with a t-shirt underneath in the cold. As with all my Columbia shirts, I feel like they could be improved by placing the buttons closer together eliminating a tendency to gap when you sit down. But many thanks to Columbia for making good quality clothing in high performance fabrics for the larger woman! April 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shirt ever I love this shirt. Ordered black at first and it was so nice I ordered another. Love the turquoise blue shirt. Fits nice over my full figure! Nice drape, sleeves are nice and long. Love the secret zipper at the chest, perfect for a credit card and a lipstick. Wish it came in more colors! April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice shirt I like the shirt, but be aware that the color in person is much lighter that the gray shown above. It washes me out, but I kept it because I like the function. I bought 3x, and can wear a t-shirt under it. January 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by comfortable This shirt is very comfortable. It washes up great. I ordered the "mirage" Colorado and it is much lighter than it appears omline. It is a very pale light blue. The photo appeared to have more gray in it. December 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this shirt I now own 14 Columbia shirts. This is one of my favorites. I love the fabric, it has a wicking ability so I stay cool wearing it. The sleeves can be rolled up to three quarter sleeves, there is plenty of room for the bustier woman. It looks nice enough to wear to work. Yes, I highly recommend this shirt. November 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice shirt I wear a size 18 an bought the 2x fit is flattering and selves are nice and long as I need a tall in most shirts. Will buy more, very warm it does not breath like cotton, good for cool weather. September 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shirt I love this shirt so much, I bought a second one. Great sun protection and it looks great. Good fit and pretty colors. April 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by best button up shirt yet I had one of these shirts from a previous season, and it always got snags. This one is still just as soft, but the fabric is much sturdier and doesn't wrinkle easily. The only thing that was kind of weird is the bright purple mesh pocket and liner on the inside. Not as pictured AT ALL. March 16, 2012
